This is a real working fishing harbor. You can walk the fishing pier and buy crab or salmon from the fisherman in season for less than at a supermarket, and look at all the working fishing boats and some of the interesting pleasure boats too. A new addition to the harbor is the restored fishing boat Irene, now giving harbor tours. If you've got the gear you can fish from the in-harbor fishing pier. Tours leave from the harbor for whale watching, and pelagic birding.

a very calm cove that houses a marina and kayak rental booth, Pillar Point Harbor also offers fishing and crabing (the freelance type) off of its pier. Fun to watch the pier fishermen do their thing.

Gayle and I decided to drive to the coast on New Years Day as a walk along the beach appealed to both of us on this first day of 20-10.
We had a nice lunch at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company and then took our dog (Yogi) our for a long walk. We strolled along the harbor, through all boat storage and repair places off the water, up the road towards the Air Force Station, and then right up the hill for stunning views of the ocean in front and the harbor behind. The surf was also fairly "angry" today and you could tell on the drive up that the surfers were out and ready.
